Angela Simmons is hanging around Kroger gas stations – and making them impossibly classy. The “Growing Up Hip-Hop” star and new Simmons Beauty founder brought mega luxury and her killer curves to an air pump at Kroger on Friday – Angela’s Instagram update also managed to throw in a giant hip-hop reference by quoting LL Cool J in the caption.
If you don’t live inside Angela’s Instagram, the 32-year-old has been busy up the wazoo promoting her new beauty brand, fronting Fashion Nova, and boxing outdoors while living up to her “Built Not Bought” hashtag. Scroll for today’s photos.
Angela, whose gigs also include a partnership with DHair boutique, was driving her 6.7 million Instagram followers to stock their carts with the brand’s merchandise – a little unusual promo never goes amiss, though.
The daughter to rapper Rev Run had been photographed outoors and by an air pump, seen flaunting her stunning curves in a skintight and electric-blue pair of shorts, a black tank, matching strappy sandals, and the stand-out accessory – a metallic, plastic-coated and gold Louis Vuitton handbag.
A caption from Angela read: “?Lisa, Angela, Pamela, Renee
I love you, you’re from around the way ? @dhairboutique.”
Angela, who was recently called “underrated” in a wet-haired and post-shower shot, more than brought in the compliments. “Move that purse though, tryna see something,” one fan wrote.
“The bag,” another said – and they weren’t alone. Angela, who promotes affordable clothing brand Fashion Nova via her partner status, might rock the $50 outfits, but the VH1 face knows her brands. Scroll for Angela’s stunning bikini body reveal.
Angela made headlines earlier this week for a twinkling and super-cute shot of herself by a little Italian car complete with the European country’s flag on it. The post likely earning Angela some top-up cash came with ripped jeans, a girly hair-tie, plus a shout-out to the brand that has full-blown collaborations with rapper Cardi B. Fashion Nova is also promoted on Instagram by stars including 30-year-old rapper Iggy Azalea and model Blac Chyna.
Angela’s business ventures are seemingly never-ending, though, with 2019 seeing the star launch her Purpose App – the app connects women through empowerment. That, in itself, is something Angela knows all too well. Keep scrolling.
April saw Angela front media outlets for a raw, honest, and stripped down bikini post as she addressed her body-image issues.
“She’s not perfect , her weight fluctuates, she has her days when she’s not sure … she doesn’t have a 6 pack,” she wrote, adding:
“Throughout this all she’s learned to love herself unconditionally… because if she didn’t who would ? She is me . And I am her.”
Angela’s Instagram is followed by celebrities including Nicki Minaj, Gabrielle Union, Cardi B, and Megan Thee Stallion, plus “Power” actress La La Anthony.
